A Letter to My Future, By Cheyanne Mclaren

I’m not sure why I’m talking to myself, but here I am.

I really hope you’ve calmed down in my future. I hope you’re happy.

I hope you aren’t worrying about being homeless or forced into church right now.

I hope you got all the tattoos and piercing you desired.

I hope you got your freedom.

I hope you proved your mother wrong.

I hope you found yourself and continue to find yourself.

I wrote this for us because I felt like we needed the encouragement.

I love us and I always will.
